So you know those super awesome “Hope” posters Obama campaigned with in 2008? They were designed by an artist named Shepard Fairey. Some of you might also be familiar with the OBEY clothing line and stick propaganda, both of which were based on Fairey’s street art. Anyway, you can do the same effect to your pictures! 1.
